A Week in Winter

A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy (Anchor, 2014)

This was Maeve Binchy’s last novel, as she died soon after completing it. It won’t disappoint you if you’re a fan; it’s a touching, comforting novel in Binchy’s signature style. The main character returns to Ireland after a failed marriage and opens a bed-and-breakfast in her former hometown, which turns out better than predicted. Each chapter introduces a new character who somehow finds his or her way to this remote Irish town during the winter and feels better for it.
